COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American-style muscle gets backed up here with real kiwi horsepower. A long, aromatic list of hops like Centennial, Citra and Simcoe should lead you to expect a massive bitterness and sensory hop presence, and you wouldn’t be far off that expectation at all. One for the hop heads.

Moderately high carbonation and crisp taste. A 500 ml bottle poured clear with a very light head. Tastes light with a beautiful fresh hop palate and a nice mouthfeel.

KeefOz (1151) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 27, 2015
Poured a clouded pale amber with 5mm of off-white foam for a head that diminished slowly to a collar that laced OK. Carbonation medium and fine. Aroma of nice fruity hops with citrus/grapefruit dominate. Taste not very sweet and the bitterness is a bit tart; not a pleasing taste. Light body. Crisp and slightly dry with a moderately strong lingering tart bitterness.

Dredd (733) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2015
Cracking beer. Deep orange amber pour, grassy hop notes. Good bitterness. Rate it above a lot of contenders

From a bottle. Biscuit malt aroma, smooth, not too much of a hop punch, might have faded a bit with age. Pretty nice drop.

Supertrev (102) - CHINA - MAY 11, 2015
Golden beer served in a Pilsner glass1cm frothy head well carbonated. Mild to medium hop aroma. Bitterness is strong but seems to work well. Leaves a lovely mouthfeel. Tastes like an IPA but as its only 5.7%abv I respect that they've called it a hoppy ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2015
Golden pour. Foamy white head. Citrus, grapefruit and mango on the nose. Sweet bready malts. Resinous taste, tropical fruits. Acidic but pleasant. Well balanced strong malt backbone. Excellent

Bule (1273) - California, USA - MAR 6, 2015
On tap at Pour House. Pours a yellow amber color with a bit of head. Sharp hop profile. Some flavors I'm not keen on.

DylansDad (455) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 18, 2015
Great aroma mandarin, bit of resiny pine (just a bit), a touch floral a bit of caramelised sugar, maybe the faintest touch of waxy granny smith skins. Taste is same, but this all hits up front, middle drops out a bit then a decent piney bitterness comes and lingers. Could drink this all night.

Tasted in bottle from Fine Wine Delivery Co. Cloudy golden, brown with minimal, long lasting head when poured for the first time in glass. The second glass poured with a thicker head. Subtle hints of malts on the nose, nothing too extreme. The malts on the front palate are far more present, with short finish. Rather intense sensations but begins to fade quite quickly. A well balanced beer, drunk with a succulent scotch fillet, wonderful match. Not over powering but very much enjoyable.
